NEW KAHR OWNER - PM9 - AWESOME GUN!!!!

I bought my pm-9 a few weeks ago when i got my CWP. i wanted a 9mm to match my other handguns, but needed something small enough to conceal on hot summer days. was shown a PM9 and jumped right on it. i have never seen a smaller 9mm. my 200 rd "break-in" period was FLAWLESS. I LOVE THIS GUN!!! no issues as of yet and i carry it EVERY day. i go to the range and pull it out from my holster and start shooting. very reliable.

that is all i have to say. i don't have a question or a point other than i love this gun and i wanted to start a new thread and hopefully get some responses!!

Have a good day and Happy Shooting!

I'll play. My experience with my PM9 mirrors yours. Love the gun, and it's been flawless out of the box. What's your serial number start with? Mine is VDxxxx. I understand the newest ones are IAxxxx. Curious to see if you have one of the newer ones.

I had some problems initially with failure to fully return to battery on the Last round in the magazine. Solved it (so far) by polishing the BOTTOM of the slide where the slide release rubs on the bottom. I think the friction was just enough to keep the slide from fully closing.

I'm really envious of you guys. My PM-9 S/N IAxxxx went back his birth place for the 2nd time. Hopefully I'll be as happy as you guys having a very reliable gun.

Re: NEW KAHR OWNER - PM9 - AWESOME GUN!!!!

My serial # is VDxxxx.

There have been 2 small issues since my first report of "flawless".

1. The magazine dropped free once or twice (out of about 100 magazines fired). This concerned me a little even though it was very rare.

2. The slide did not lock back at the end of the magazine. Again, rare, but disconcerting none the less.

I called Kahr. the sent a new, thicker, stronger magazine catch spring, a new magazine catch, and a new slide lock spring. I installed it all and guess what? Back to flawless! the new catch spring is very tight and there is no way i could see a magazine dropping free. the new catch holds the magazine slightly higher (it appears higher anyway) and the slide catches every time.

I have about 200 rds through since the new parts and it is running flawlessly.

Thanks to Kahr for the quick support (parts arrived in 2 days) and the knowledge to know what was wrong!!!!
